Amoral nation

Thank goodness the elections are over. No more campaign lies, no more wondering how Romney will run our country. A friend told me the winners of this election have a hollow victory because of all the lies in the campaign ads. People are really gullible. We now will have women killing their unwanted unborn babies in droves because our tax dollars will pay for it even though some of us didn’t want it. We will have Elizabeth Warren in Washington saying “Yes” for the Democratic Party until she has laryngitis instead of voting for what is right for all in Massachusetts. We will push God further out of our lives because our politicians won’t stand up for Him and say this is wrong. We will have atheists telling us if we go to our church and pray we will offend them. We will not be able to do anything that is morally right, which means we now can say the United States is an amoral country. Wow. We’ve come a long way from our forefathers who founded this country on God and freedom.

Nasty campaign

I am amazed at some liberal acquaintances who are shocked that Republicans like me won’t begin to “join” them in unity after this election. All of a sudden those who made hateful remarks are trying to renew friendships and accusing Republicans of being unpatriotic by not joining hands and singing “Kumbaya.” Sorry, I couldn’t hear you from the back of the bus where Obama said I had to ride. Please remember that roughly 50 percent of us didn’t vote for your president. No thanks. If he actually does compromise, include and listen, we’ll talk, maybe. But the hurt and pain is remembered. Other than that, consider me your ex-friend. I remember all the nasty remarks — an elephant never forgets.
